A Spalding County man is facing a potential sentence of more than 25 years prison and a $1 million fine in connection with charges including trafficking meth.

The Spalding County Sheriff’s Office Special Operations and C.A.G.E. units on Wednesday arrested Jackson Jones, of 1185 School Road, after he was allegedly found to be in possession of a kilogram of methamphetamine and $1,650 in currency.

Jones arrest was made during a traffic stop at 19/41 and Mailer Road.

“Jones has an extensive criminal history and has plagued this community for years with his continual disregard of the law and people’s lives. Based on the amount of methamphetamine that Jones had in his possession, he is facing a mandatory minimum of 25 years in prison and a one million dollar fine,” said Sheriff Darrell Dix. “Jones is currently being held in the Spalding County Jail and has charged with trafficking methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute, possession of methamphetamine, failure to maintain lane and driving a vehicle with an expired tag. He is being held without bond. The methamphetamine that Jones was found to be in possession of has an estimated street value of approximately $30,000. Over the years Jones has crossed paths with the law on multiple occasions and evidentially hasn’t learned his lesson. We hope that he will have a lot of time on his hands now to think about that.”
